We love the Erin! It is a motel not a hotel!!!! Karen does a great job with helping you with anything you need. Come early, stay late they are overly accomodating.The rooms are spacious with picnic tables outside your door. You are right on the lake, and can watch the ferry come and go. You can walk most everywhere from... More

We stayed at Erin Motel several times, primeraly because is the only Hotel/Motel that accepts pets. The location is great and convinient. We stayed in room on a Lake side, with a georgous morning sunrise. The truth is that Roy (the owner) should be taking care of this place little bit better. The furniture is kind of old and unpolished.... More

We arrived in the morning expecting to store our luggage, and were surprisingly offered the room to check in. We found no indication of bed bugs. The theme of this hotel is deferred maintenance. From the soft goods, to the furniture, window screens, door lock, etc...it all needs attention. We asked for lawn chairs to sit outside and told there... More

When I stayed at the Erin Motel it was quite adequate. Roy let us use a freezer in the office area which was a nice gesture. Room was clean, and not noisy on the street side. We rented the Harbor House from Roy the next year.

We just stayed there. There are rooms on the lake side and rooms on the streetside. We were on the lakeside, which is really quite nice: we woke in the a.m to the sound of water lapping at the beach and of sea gulls. It' s not fancy that' s for sure, but it was fine for the price. I... More

The location of the motel was nice, other than that I can't say anything good about it. No air conditioning, mold on the shower curtin, ants in the bathroom, musty smell, uncomfortable beds. To top ALL that off, my husband and I both suffered from BED BUGS bites!!!

Right next to the docks, this wonderful place is comfortable, and priced right. Also, it is only a "stumble" from the Shamrock. :) Love this place.

I brought three of my grandsons, ages 10, 11 and 12 to the island last July. The room is basic as the entire island tends to be. We slept like rocks with the windows open. I had brought some food in a cooler. There is a small fridge and microwave. It was nice cooking on the grill overlooking St. James... More

This was a very basic room, however, it did have a king sized bed, small fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Unfortunately, no air conditioning - but that seems to be common on the island. It is 1/2 block from the ferry and on the beach. This is not a luxury accomodation by any means, but I was not planning to... More

We chose this simple, older, motel for its location right by the harbor and ferry dock. Its location cannot be beat. The view cannot be beat. And it is close to a couple of restaurants/bars/stores. Our room was on the water side, and the large windows (2 of which open) are wonderful for viewing the bay, boats, ferry, and Whiskey... More
